Podcast Plethora, part 2

Filed under: Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 12:19 PM

Audio just keeps coming. Blind Bargains posted the rest of my ACB coverage, along with Joe’s NFB interviews. You can also find me on Clockwise #95, talking about whether the updated iPod Touch (swoon) portends a small iPhone, plus Comcast, Reddit, and ibeacons. Speaking of beacons, please enjoy my interview and demo (audio) of the Lowviz Guide indoor navigation system from ACB.

Podcast Plethora, part 1

Filed under: Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 1:38 PM

Last week and this shall be filled with podcasts. You have been warned.

I covered the ACB convention for Blind Bargains, and those stories are starting to hit the feed today. For the moment, I commend you to the BB site and podcast feed. There’s one really cool episode I want to give special pimpage when it drops, so watch for it. In the meantime, please also enjoy a really long but interesting Maccessibility Roundtable, with lots of talk about Apple Music, plus my commentary on that Cupertino company’s presentation at ACB.

The Roundtable Dissects WWDC

Filed under: Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 9:17 AM

After enduring (we actually liked a lot of it) a super-long WWDC keynote, the Maccessibility Roundtable crew held forth on all of Apple’s announcements and shiny gewgaws.

Blind Bargains (Almost) Half Year in Review

Filed under: Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 3:36 PM

Joe and J.J. over at the Blind Bargains BBQast invited me to join their panel of guest pundit-types to talk about the year (so far) in assistive technology (AT.) And it was fun, especially because I got to chat with Ricky Enger and Chancey Fleet.

Podcast Catchup, WordPress Crackup

Filed under: Announcements,Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 8:25 AM

Ten days ago, I posted a podcast. Almost immediately, I broke the Shelly’s Podcast Web site. Well, I broke it because I was missing some essential WordPress knowledge. I spent a lot of last week acquiring the knowhow I needed to fix the site, and being grateful that DreamHost, a hosting service I understand some people have problems with, was so willing to walk me through making nitty gritty fixes to MySQL tables. It’s worthy of note, too, that they neither condescended to me, or left me dangling. The site is back up, and you can find episode #252 of Shelly’s Podcast there. People seemed to like this one. I was frenetic, and grumpy, and podcasting solo. So go figure.

Also, here’s a short list of things I learned about WordPress last week:

  • How not to back up your WP site
  • How not to get content from an old installation to a new one
  • Where the content of your site actually resides (in the database, duh.)
  • The joy of cleaning crap out of wp-content
  • How to muck around in phpAdmin, including the export of data, deletion of excess database tables, and the editing of others
  • Why things broke in the first place, and how making your site more secure can sometimes bit you in the buttocks

The Maccessibility Roundtable also happened last week. I sure wish spell-check would quit trying to correct the word maccessibility, by the way. Lots of Apple Watch talk, as one might expect.

Clockwise #79

Filed under: Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 1:08 PM

You’re sick of hearing about my being on podcasts, yes? This one was fun, and it’s one of only a few tech podcast I listen to regularly. Even better. Thanks to Jason and Dan for having me.

Shelly’s Podcast #251: High Heels and a Dead Cat

Filed under: Podcast Appearances — Shelly Brisbin @ 10:16 PM

I used to do a podcast. I mean, I used to do a podcast frequently. Now I do it when inspiration hits me on the head, or when I find a good title.
